unfair? walter, what would you say about a man who when his wife leans over to kiss him good morning says, "not now, not before i've had my coffee." please, maude. this is not a movie. when robert redford wakes up and leans over and kisses barbra streisand before he's had his coffee, he's only doing it because they're paying him a million dollars. a million dollars for robert redford? money well spent. v-8 juice, sir-- starts the day with that extra little morning dash. i've already had my morning dash. yeah, right past me. my, isn't he in a bloody awful mood? mrs. naugatuck, you'll have to excuse mr. findlay. i woke up on the wrong side of his bed this morning. no, mum, if there's a man in your room, there is no wrong side of the bed.

oh hello, carol. hello, vivian. good-bye, vivian. and burn the joy of sex for mother. oh, carol, i've read the joy of sex. if you're gonna burn it, memorize it first. ha ha ha ha! oh, maude! what a glorious day. you'll just never guess how arthur woke me up this morning. vivian, whatever he did, i don't want to hear about it. oh. ha ha ha! well, first, he kissed me. and then,
5:07 pm
and he whispered... ( panting ) "testing, one, two, three." a-ha ha ha! i see, the famous panasonic hi-fi stereo upchuck test. and then, he put the other end to his heart, and he said, "do you hear that beat, cutlet? that's the beat of love." ( high-pitched scream ) so then what happened? oh, then he said for me to pack a few things because he's got us a cabin at lake george for the weekend. ( snap ) just like that, out of the blue. isn't that marvelous? oh, it's marvelous, viv. so i was wondering if i could borrow your old mackinaw to take along? though i probably won't be needing it, of course, with arthur to keep me warm. oh! oh!
5:08 pm
oh, he just-- he just makes me tingly, tingly, tingle... when he ups and does something like this on the spur of the moment. although i guess it's just part of being newlyweds. oh, come on, vivian you're hardly newlyweds. your ring finger's already turned green. oh, yeah. you know that bearskin rug in the den? you're kidding, viv. why do you think the bear is smiling? ha, ha, ha! well, thanks for the coat. uh, have a wonderful time, viv. oh! thank you. you have a wonderful time, too. doing whatever it is you cozy, comfy old marrieds do. i'm just so tingly. ha, ha, ha! oh, where have we gone wrong?! where have we lost our way?
5:09 pm
look at us, walter. look at us. all the joy, the spontaneity and the excitement is out of our marriage. walter, we don't even own a bearskin rug. you won't let me keep a gun in the house. walter, don't you see? our marriage has become warm, safe, secure. right. and boring, walter. boring, boring, boring! we have not one single tingle left in our marriage. please, maude. oh, walter, honey, remember you use to put on that corny straw hat and play that hokey ukulele and sing, ? yes, sir, that's my baby, no, sir... ? maude, you always hated it when i did that. i know. how come you don't do it anymore? but, maude-- no, you come home now, i say i love you, you grunt, take off your shoes, and check the tv guide. i mean, walter we don't even talk to each other anymore. okay, maude, let's talk. how'd it go today?
5:10 pm
i tried. oh, darling, don't you see what's happened to us? walter, our lifestyle is so--so dull, so monotonous so--so predictable. it is not predictable. that's exactly what i predicted you'd say. come on, maude. walter, doesn't it bother you that there are people our ages, who--who still have romance in their marriages like--like our next door neighbors? the greenblatts are romantic? i'm not talking about the greenblatts, walter. i'm talking about arthur and viv. you know how arthur woke viv this morning? he stuck his stethoscope in her ears, and whispered sweet nothings.
5:11 pm
sorry. you know what else arthur did? he told vivian to pack a bag because on an impulse, he got them a cabin up at lake george for the weekend. come on, maude. that wasn't any impulse. i mean, you know, arthur. chances are somebody gave him a key to their cabin. yeah, but walter, let me ask you something. if somebody had given you the key, would you have gone up there, just like that? (snap) of course. like that. (snap) honest, maude. i'd come home, tell you to throw a few things together and we'd go off and spend the weekend in each other's arms. honey, do you really mean it? of course i do. ohh. ha ha ha. you're tickling my ear. ha ha ha. i love your ear. oh, walter. i'm so sorry... your neck. that i yelled at you.
5:12 pm
hey, listen, i just wanted to stop by before we go, walter, and thank you old buddy for giving me that key to the cabin. he gave you that key? oh, hi, maudie. sure, didn't he tell you? see, this business acquaintance of his offered him the use of this neat cabin. thanks a lot, arthur. o use it, good old walter passed the key along to me. thanks. wait a minute, maude. now wait a minute. now let me explain. look, about that key-- you know what you can do with that key walter? ( snap ) just like that. wait, look. you can do the exact same thing with that stethoscope of yours, arthur. wait a minute, walter. i don't understand. why are you attacking my stethoscope? because you have a big mouth! now look, maude and i are going along with you two
5:13 pm
ld it. hold it. now wait a minute, walter, heh, heh. i'm not at all sure how vivian would feel about that. i couldn't care less. if she's unhappy, we'll go alone! forget it, walter. in the mood you're in, i wouldn't go anywhere with you alone! maude? i have something very important to do. but, maude. wait, this is something that can't wait. yes, i'm calling on behalf of ma and pa findlay. come on, maude. all right now, you wanted spontaneity? i'll give you spontaneity. guess what? we're going with the harmons up to that cabin. that's about as spontaneous as gas after a mexican meal. maude--
5:14 pm
i mean, the woman is planning on an exciting, romantic weekend alone with arthur. which in itself will be enough of a disappointment. maude, how could you? come on now, honey. i had nothing to-- don't you call yourself my best friend. trying to ruin my weekend! vivian, i had no intention-- oh, you interloper! you don't even like rustic places. you know you hate any place away from the city. you told me once when your time comes, you want to buried in a shopping center. you listen to me, vivian! you have no right to ruin my weekend. just because you and walter might happen to be a couple of old fogies. now wait a minute, vivian. old fogies? vivian, i am forgiving that remark only because it comes from an insecure bride in an aging body. oh, an aging ... you're just jealous because together, you and walter are a hundred years old.
5:15 pm
that's impossible. that makes arthur three. ohh! oh, yeah?! well, there's your dumb old key. and there's dumb old coat. because we don't need your dumb old cabin. unlike some dumb old people i know, who shall remain nameless, arthur and i can find love and romance and spontaneity at home! yeah well let me tell you something, vivian harmon! our marriage is every bit as romantic and spontaneous as yours is any old day! she's right, walter. we're a couple of old fogies. right, we're a couple of old fogies, but we're gonna do something about it right now. come on, maude. let's go up to that cabin and have the time of our lives. oh, walter. you say that, but you don't mean it. i mean it, maude! i mean it! i'm sorry, walter but after the way you've acted today, there's nothing you could say or do that would make me feel any different.
5:16 pm
? yes, sir, that's my baby ? ? no, sir, i mean maybe ? ? yes, sir, that's my baby now ? ? yes, sir, we've decided ? ? no, sir, we won't hide it ? okay, okay, okay. i'll go on one condition. what's that? that you stop singing.

5:51 pm
sure, it's very popular in merchandising. you see, you tempt the customer with a carrot on a stick. oh, and while you're holding the carrot, the customer gets the stick. now, wait a minute, maude. loss leaders are a perfectly acceptable business practice. aw, come on, walter, you just got through telling arthur that you only had two refrigerators in the whole store. the way you sounded on your commercial, you had refrigerators coming out of your ears. oh, maudie, loss leaders are nothing new. e way back to adam and eve. yeah, eve got adam interested, with an apple, see, and she lured him into the garden of eden, dangling her apple. the next thing he knew, he had a whole family to support. you see, the apple was eve's loss leader. arthur, that is the single worst analogy i've have heard in my entire life. adam and eve.

5:53 pm
